Raccoon Case - FREE - PDF Sewing Pattern
A soft case for glasses, sunglasses, pencils, insulin pens or anything really - that easily opens all the way, making your items quick to get out when needed and easy to put back. The case is flat when not in use, but the padding from the batting keeps your glasses or items safe in your bag when you're not using them.

BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY
Beginner friendly. The pattern has color photos showing every step of making the case, but basic sewing skills is required.
9” x 8¼” (23x21cm) - Exterior: Cotton fabric, vinyl, faux leather or cork fabric.
9” x 8¼” (23x21cm) - Lining: Cotton fabric.
9” x 8¼” (23x21cm) - Foam/fusible fleece/quilt batting interfacing: By Annie’s Soft & Stable, Pellon FlexFoam, Bosal In-R-Form, Fusible Fleece, Pellon TP971F Fusible Thermolam, quilt batting or similar. You can use pretty much whichever batting scrap you have on hand, just choose a batting with a bit of loft and stability - to protect your glasses better.
9” x 8¼” (23x21cm) Fusible web: Heat n’ Bond Lite, Vliesofix Bondaweb or similar, the kind you use for appliqué. Recommended only if working with cotton exterior and non-fusible foam/interfacing. Not necessary.
1 - #3 Zipper 25” (63cm) (or longer): Should match the exterior fabric. #5 zippers can be used but the bottom will be bulkier.
Double sided quilting/sewing tape: I recommend this but it’s not necessary.
Rotary cutter, cutting mat and ruler.
Non-permanent marker: For making temporary marks, that can be removed with water, heat or similar.
